Inking the Negative of a Cuttlebug Folder (Letterpress Emboss)

I took a comparison photo of both an embossed piece of cardstock, and one where the folder was inked before running the cardstock through the machine. You can see a little bit more depth in the one on the left. It is very subtle, because I used only a shade darker than the cardstock itself. I used the Colorbox Chalk Inks, because they tend not to smear as much as the die inks for this technique.

Here is the finished result, using this Inking the Negative of an Embossing Folder. I am excited to see what you gals come up with.
